Install Xerox workcentre 5755 in ubuntu 12.04 lts

Howto install Xerox workcentre 5755on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Installed Xerox workcentre 5755 by going to Xerox WorkCentre 5735/5740/5745/5755 Support & Drivers:

Then going to the Printer Model Package:

Then after download extract in the folder or a new folder (whichever) and that folder will have the ppd file needed to install. Then go to Ubuntu Dash Home type printing select printing

then go to add printer
select find network printer, then put the ip address of YOUR workcentre, select AppSocket/HP JetDirect, select Forward

Then select PPD file and browse to the folder where you extracted the downloaded file look for thee ppd folder then find the ppd file for your printer, myself I used the 5733 for the 5755.

Then this appears select what the printer options are if in doubt leave what the defaults are

Select Forward, this will show:

Rename as you wish, if you get some menu that states there are conflicts, I think is due to selecting options the printer does not have. At the end will ask you if you want to print test page and hopefully it will work for you as it did for me!
